I have had a lot of fun making these custom birthday crowns for my shop!
I love using organic- fair-trade and naturally plant dyed materials for my work. I really think that the ethical natural and quality of materials brings a warmth and love through the very fibres of the work itself.
I also love the way a design will almost dream itself into being.
I get a vision of the design and the work and know exactly what colours to use in an intuitive way.
It seems that the best things almost "dream" themselves into being!
Joy is an essential ingredient to creative work.
You can tell when something is made with joy and of pure, natural fabrics, it is so different to handle and touch than anything that has been mass produced.
It holds a different quality and carries a different energy.
